Damn you people, this is golf!

Netflix have confirmed that a sequel to Happy Gilmore is officially in the works.

The 1996 sports comedy starred Adam Sandler as a hockey player with anger management issues who discovers he’s also got a talent for golf.

Adam Sandler, who co-wrote the original film as well as starred in it, has been working on the script of the sequel for a few a months now, according to his old co-star Christopher McDonald.

“I saw Adam [Sandler] about two weeks ago, and he says to me, ‘McDonald, you’re gonna love this,’” McDonald said. “I said, ‘What?’ He says, ‘How about that,’ and he shows me the first draft of ‘Happy Gilmore 2.’ Maybe you should cut that out [of this audio] because I don’t wanna be a liar, but he did show me that, and I thought, ‘Well, that would be awesome.’ So, it’s in the works. Fans demand it, dammit!”

Chris McDonald played the antagonist of the film, an arrogant pro-golfer Shooter McGavin.

Happy Gilmore made nearly $40 million at the box office in 1996, and propelled Adam Sandler on his career to being one of the biggest comedy stars of that time.
